Texas A&M lands No. 3 seed in the 2016 NCAA Tournament

Two victories in the SEC Tournament —after taking the title of co-champ in the regular season — locked in Texas A&M's spot in the NCAA Tournament.

The No. 17 Aggies on Sunday were selected as a No. 3 seed in the West Region when the 2016 tourney field was announced.


Awaiting the Aggies in the first round is No. 14 seed Green Bay, with a potential second-round matchup against either 6-seed Texas or 11-seed Northern Iowa.

Yes, Texas.

Further along in the West bracket, Oregon is the 1-seed and Oklahoma the 2.

A&M entered the postseason projected by most as a 4- or 5-seed, then stormed to the championship game in Nashville before falling in overtime to Kentucky. Wins over Florida and LSU led most pundits to comfortably predict the Aggies would land on the 4 line.

As it turns out, the selection committee felt differently.

Texas A&M has reached the Sweet 16 twice and never further in its basketball history. The 26-8 Aggies will begin their attempt on Friday in Oklahoma City.
